Zebra Photo ID Machines for Smart Card Solutions

ID cards with smart card encoding offer a substantial amount of security and functionality in comparison to other ID card technologies such as bar codes and magnetic stripes. With a smart card system, data is transmitted when the card makes contact with a reader, or is waived in front of a reader (in the case of contactless smart cards).


Smart cards serve a variety of functions and are applicable to a vast range of users. Common examples include large companies, financial institutions, universities, and public transit systems. Many corporations, for instance, utilize smart card technology for employee IDs. These smart card IDs can be integrated with access control systems, not only for building access, but also for logging into computers and networks. The cards can even be used for meal plans, and parking fees. Because of the amount of information a smart card can hold, the possibilities are virtually endless when it comes to functionality.


Zebra offers a number of photo ID machines with internal encoders for smart card issuance. Select Zebra ID card printers support a range of smart card technologies including contact smart chips and contactless smart cards.
